Settled halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, the San Luis Obispo County is defined by its quaint and colorful seaside living. The charming ocean-side towns of Pismo Beach and Avila Beach make San Luis Obispo County the perfect destination for wine lovers and travelers alike. Beautiful hills and valleys appear as you move further inland, including the world renowned Edna and Arroyo Grande Valleys.
The marine climate of the San Luis Obispo County enriches the production of wine growing in the region, resulting in an unusually long growing season for wine grapes. This extended growing season produces a wide and rich array of flavors, which in turn creates memorable and delicious wine experiences that can only be found in the San Luis Obispo County. The perfect temperature and long growing season define the San Luis Obispo County as one of the premier wine-growing regions of the world.
The city of San Luis Obispo is the epicenter of the San Luis Obispo County, but short drives north and south of the city deliver world class dining, drinking and visiting experiences. A short drive north of San Luis Obispo is the historic Hearst Castle and an even shorter drive south will result in delicious a clam chowder bread bowl from the world famous Splash Café in Pismo Beach. Picturesque ocean views, world-class wine and fun tourist attractions make San Luis Obispo County a premier wine and travel destination.
